Laptop tool to measure/monitor data speed over Verizon Network

12 posts in this topic

Would someone please recommend a tool to monitor/measure speed of data over a Verizon connection.  I connect using a MIFI/jetpack and typically have two phones, a laptop and a tablet all connected at the same time.  THANKS

Thanks Matilda & John but I don't do Apple.  I am a Windows/Android sort of person.  I failed to mention that.  I will go look see if they have these.  They probably do.

Google has a generic Internet speed test.  Go to google.com and enter "speed test" (two words) in the search box.

Ookla speed test also.

Now the question - are the phones using the mifi as a wifi connection spot? and why? In this case I would set it up as ::

tower to phone #1

tower to phone #2 

tower to mifi to laptop and tablet. It may save you data and will save you speed. The tower will see them as 3 separate devices and allocate band width to each (3 'pipes' carrying 3x data).

Another one:  testmy.net.   It works well on all my devices (Win 10, Mac, Android and iOS).

Another useful, free product is Networx.  It not only displays speed but it also displays data usage over a selected period of time.
